  • Editorial Note: Science, Activism, and Collaboration: Stories from
           Transitional Spaces
    • Abstract: This issue has coalesced thematically around the diverse, contingent, and contradictory contexts that both opened and restricted opportunities for women’s involvement in science and political activism. The authors of the first two articles share an interest in women in science, even if their themes are separated by time and place. One highlights a collaborative environment of observational astronomy in Enlightenment France, itself hotly divided over the presence and visibility of the femmes savantes in the scientific discoveries of the age. The other addresses new work options carved out by the first generation of trained female medical doctors in Weimar Germany. Operating in a hostile environment favoring male ... Read More

  • Learned and Loving: Representing Women Astronomers in Enlightenment France
    • Abstract: In Enlightenment France, the figure of the learned woman raised serious questions. How involved should women be in philosophy and science? What talents might they possess? How much credit should male savants give to their female collaborators? These were questions without easy answers, and they prompted a range of responses. Some men asserted that women were, by their very nature, unqualified for intellectual work. Others were happy to work with women, but they were not interested in sharing credit. Still, others insisted that men should collaborate with and credit women. Finally, a small group insisted that brilliant women—just like brilliant men—should stand as fully realized and autonomous figures.The problem of ... Read More

  • Finding A Space In Schools: Female Doctors and the Reform of Girls’
           Physical Education in Weimar Germany
    • Abstract: In a 1961 autobiographical essay for Berliner Medizin, Dr. Ilse Szagunn reflected on her part-time position as a school doctor during the Weimar Republic. “Vita von Ilse Szagunn. Ein Lebensbild in der Zeit” (“Ilse Szagunn’s Vita: A Life Portrait”) characterized her wide-ranging responsibilities at the Charlottenburg vocational school in terms that combined the professional with the maternal. Until the vocational school fired her in compliance with the Doppelverdiener (double-earner) law, Szagunn oversaw 3,000 female students, promoted health care for children, fought for child-workers’ rights, and taught women about sexual health.1 Szagunn wrote with evident pride about her work with working-class fourteen to ...

  • “So that life may triumph”: Communist Feminism and Realpolitik
           in Civil-War Greece
    • Abstract: At the November 1945 founding conference of the Women’s International Democratic Federation (WIDF) in Paris, cofounder and President Eugenie Cotton articulated the link between gender, peace, and democracy in the wake of the war against fascism and imperialism: “It was Fascism that caused the 1939–1945 war and because of this, the founders of the WIDF stressed their determination to work for the strengthening of democracy in the world. … When they demand peace, women think first and foremost of safeguarding the lives of their children … There are many organisations concerned with peace … but we are concerned with peace as women, with women’s arguments … we better understand the humiliation of colonial peoples ...

  • Creating Good Socialist Women: Continuities, Desire, and Degeneration in
           Slatan Dudow’s “The Destinies of Women”
    • Abstract: After a long day in the factory, Renate, a young East German woman declines the offer to attend a meeting on gender equality, telling her co-worker “what do I care about other women?” Instead of demonstrating her commitment to the socialist vision of emancipation, she steals away to meet Conny Lohmüller, her lover from the West, rejecting her collective responsibilities for the pursuit of pleasure. Such behavior had no place within socialist society, as the tragedy that awaits Renate in Slatan Dudow’s 1952 film The Destinies of Women (Frauenschicksale) makes clear.1 Through the stories of Renate, and Conny’s other young lovers, Dudow warned young socialist women about the dangers of romantic and material desire. ...

  • Women in the 1968 Eugene McCarthy Campaign and the Development of Feminist
           Politics
    • Abstract: On November 30, 1967, Eugene McCarthy announced his challenge to Lyndon Johnson for the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination. The Minnesota senator wanted to end the war in Vietnam, restore national unity, and focus attention on social problems. In St. Charles, Missouri, Madeena Spray Nolan was “so apolitical I thought McCarthy was dead.” Yet, in less than nine months, McCarthy’s candidacy transformed the young mother’s life. She previously believed “politics was a man’s thing,” but the campaign awakened her to “the political power of women and the need for their participation in the political process.” Four years later, Nolan was on the Missouri board of the National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) and active ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Leila Rupp has transformed women’s history. As a scholar, editor, and mentor she has initiated new approaches and topics, shaped and refined the field, and helped new voices enter the conversation. Colleagues who have worked with Leila in a number of different capacities created this roundtable to explore her work and her influence on us as people and on the rich scholarship in women’s history. This is no simple love-fest, although it is also that. The contributors below offer critical appraisals and historically contextualized analyses of Leila’s scholarship even as they explain how and why it broke new ground. They also show how a first-rate scholar combines research, activism, and vibrant personal relationships ... Read More

  • “Worlds of Women” Making a Difference
    • Abstract: My contribution to our reflections on the ways in which the historian Leila Rupp has transformed the field of women’s history focuses on the impact of her 1997 book Worlds of Women: The Making of an International Women’s Movement.1 This text is not only one of the most cited books in the field of women’s and gender history, but it also helped to shape the relatively new study of transnational women’s movements of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.2 Before this now classic book, Rupp published a number of articles that helped formulate an agenda for research about women’s transnational organizing, and her work remains relevant today.3The struggle for women’s rights and human dignity is neither a ...

  • Leila Rupp: Scholar, Mentor, and Fashionista
    • Abstract: I am deeply honored to be part of this roundtable to celebrate renowned scholar, committed mentor, and fabulous dresser, Leila Rupp. Her intellectual work and her professional guidance have shaped my academic work since I was a graduate student at Stanford University in the 1990s.It was just over twenty years ago that I began my dissertation, a biographical study of a remarkable woman, Dr. Margaret Jessie Chung who was the first American-born Chinese woman physician. During the 1910s and 1920s, soon after Chung graduated from medical school, she donned the physical appearance of a man and adopted the nickname, Mike. She also developed emotional and erotic relationships with other women. And, during the ... Read More

  • Women, Work, and Family in the Distinguished Career of Leila J. Rupp
    • Abstract: As PhD students who were preparing for comprehensive exams, my peers and I anticipated that one of Leila Rupp’s essay questions would require us to use Louise Tilly and Joan Scott’s book, Women, Work, and Family, as a point of departure.1 I will admit the unflattering fact that anything focused on family and set in Western Europe sounded like a real bore to me. The book’s publication date in the 1970s did not elevate its appeal. Of course, now I am grateful for the well-rounded training I received as a women’s historian, and I cringe when my own students do not share my appreciation of classic texts.While reflecting on Rupp’s impact on the field, it occurred to me that Tilly and Scott’s title—Women, Work, and ...

  • The Ruppian History of Sexuality
    • Abstract: As many readers of this journal know, Leila Rupp is the model feminist scholar. She is frighteningly prolific, she is the administrator you always wanted—the chair, the dean, the editor who is thoughtful, organized, and completely on top of things—and she is kind, funny, and smart, and, I have to add, stylish to boot. I met Leila years ago when I was a graduate student giving my first conference paper. She came up afterwards and said something nice about my work, and then I had the temerity a few months later to ask her whether she would sponsor me for an Ohio State University postdoctoral fellowship that I had seen advertised. The postdoc was, I learned later, designed for scientists, and Leila could have just ... Read More

  • Whiggish Thinking about Transnational Women’s History and Queer
           History
    • Abstract: Thank you all. I am incredibly honored and, to tell the truth, a little embarrassed. I even feel like a fraud, something that I expect is more familiar to women than to men in our profession. There are so many people, even just in this room, who deserve this honor more than I. Nevertheless, I want to thank Leigh Ann for organizing this session; Francisca, Joanne, Judy, and Susan for such deeply smart, moving, funny, and kind words; and everyone in the audience for coming.I am really happy that the panelists took this opportunity to say so much about important developments in the field of women’s history. I am reminded of a story I told in my inaugural lecture as a full professor at Ohio State University. A Germanic ... Read More

  • The Return of the Queen
    • Abstract: Scholars interested in the dynamics of gender and power are reconsidering the history of medieval and early modern queens, a subject that historians once dismissed as the study of “women worthies.” These three books accomplish two important tasks: they present new biographies of royal women; they examine critically legends about these women that persist in the scholarship; and they showcase the central role of queens in the courts, their kingdoms, and the histories of their period. The results complicate our understanding of how women claimed and wielded authority in the premodern world. The authors investigate royal women with notorious reputations marred by scandal, cupidity, and claims of improper mothering, or ... Read More

  • Slavery, Freedom, and Women’s Bodies
    • Abstract: The recent body-centered analytical turn in slavery scholarship has yielded fresh insights into the centrality of the female body to slave resistance and slavery’s ideological foundations.1 By focusing on the womb, each of the books under review reveals the significance of the reproductive body to the entrenchment and destruction of slavery. Because women’s reproductive ability threatened the social order, elite men enacted regulations to preserve the status quo. Sometimes, the subjugated populations who had different ideas about childbearing fought for bodily and maternal autonomy. At other times, they appropriated elites’ gendered expectations to fit their quests for freedom. While the womb was the single most ... Read More

  • The History of Prostitution Now
    • Abstract: Fifteen years ago, Timothy Gilfoyle published a lengthy essay devoted to the history of prostitution in the American Historical Review. He observed that in the last quarter of the twentieth century, historians complicated the history of prostitution “in ways unanticipated a generation ago.”1 As the six books reviewed here demonstrate, innovation in the history of sex work continues. Historians are now studying “up” rather than “down,” concentrating on brothel madams and luxury establishments rather than streetwalkers and street solicitation. Scholars today point to changing patterns of consumption and leisure (including tourism), rather than altered labor relations (like industrialization) to explain changes in the ... Read More

  • Reading Modern Women
    • Abstract: Who was the “Modern Woman”? What made her modern? And, how and why did she become an enduring emblem of her age? Scholars working in a variety of disciplines have asked these questions about unconventional women who emerged en masse across the globe in the first half of the twentieth century. Scholars have been attentive to the lived experiences of embodied historical actors as well as to discursive constructions of the Modern Woman as a “heuristic device” and cultural typology. They have discovered that, in every context in which they appeared, modern women aroused suspicion by simultaneously evoking the possibilities and the perils of modern life. On the one hand, the Modern Woman’s provocative appearance—hair ... Read More
